Happy February.... what have I been doing? Not blogging enough that is for sure. Why is it when you actually have good stuff to blog about ..... you (I) don't do it?
Fun hat..it looks great on my daughter.. :)
And I spun it on the drop spindle.
Next thing I know, I need a spinning wheel and I am researching and talking with everyone I can about wheels. Trying out wheels at knit night.... well just wanting to do it. Learning "how to" on line...
Next thing I know.... This is coming to my house. Oh how I waited for her arrive. The Ladybug by Schacht. It is new and pure love. I didn't think I'd see this in my house for months..but where there is a will....
So I am spinning and even plying (barely)... the cream color is my first two ply. Feels like packing twine...but it is cool looking..
Just like blocking.. a bath was needed...then remove excess water and snap it a few times and then a hank of yarn. It is drying
Sorry for the sideways shot...but I have been loosing posts a lot and I am not tampering with it.
So in addition to being a knit freak, my house has niddy noddys, bobbins, fiber, oil, did I mention fiber? Oh my!!! Life is interesting.
I thought knitting is my Zen and Spinning would be my art...but it is reverse.....completely the reverse.
So this is the knitting, spinning haps. My mittens need thumbs, hubbys socks need finished and well I have a lot going on. It feels great. Have a great weekend.
